2010 VMware SDK / API Predictions – by Pablo Roesch

Folks,

It is hard to believe the New Year is already in its second week. I have been a little quiet these past few weeks as it has been hard to recover from my holiday break. I might have spent too much time in an undisclosed remote beach in Central America.

 

Here are my Top 5 Predictions for 2010.

 

#1. VMware Developer Community Sample Code site will be easier to use. As you know uploading and sharing code on our community is not ideal. Nava has been writing a plug in to improve the way the code is displayed and shared. It’s still a work in progress and will be released into the wild soon.

 

#2. VMware Global Support Services will provide SDK Developer / Scripting Support for our end user customers. Right now SDK Developer Support is only available for TAP members, (Select Level and above) We have been working with our friends in GSS and hope to have some good news for our customers this year. It has been long overdue.

 

#3. William (Lamw) will be the winner of some hard cold cash if no one else submits a script in our Script-O-Mania contest. The Script-O-Mania contest was launched before the break and William was our first and only contestants. Odds of winning are on his side.

 

#4. Project Onyx will take over our minds and force its will on the SDK / API marketing team. Project Onyx was developed by our PowerCLI development team with the goal to make developing, scripting using our APIs a little bit easier. This is very much a grass roots project and has gained an immense amount of popularity from our administrators and developers out there.

 

#5. I will find an iPhone app that will not only help me find my way home when lost, but will also open my garage door.   This is more of a fun prediction. I lost my remote controlled garage door opener during VMworld Developer Day and I am waiting for someone to create a really useful application that will open my automatic garage door opener.

  1. Dedicated Hosting

    I request you to make publicity of such contest at least 3 months early before it is going to launch. So that you will find more participants for it.
